Addolorata Villa Presents: Funny People: Dick van Dyke (Harper College’s Lifelong Learning Program)
September 21, 2016 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The Dick Van Dyke Show is remembered as one of the wittiest situation comedies. What is less well remembered is that it was a deceptive innovator that contrasts sharply with the situation comedies of the 1950s. It ushers in a new era and was the first sitcom to be set in suburbia, feature both the world of work AND a fully developed home life and offer rich and consistent backstories for all the characters. A modern housewife featured a professional woman in the workplace. This unique presentation will highlight one of the most iconic programs and early TV history.
